The Tibet Trek and Cho Oyu Climbing Team had a great day touring Lhasa today. It has been a while since we went through Lhasa and there have been some changes, the city has grown but the historical sights are still breathtaking. A couple of the big highlights of the day were Barkhor and of course, the Potala Palace. Tomorrow, the plan will be to tour Norbulingka in the morning and Sera Temple in the afternoon.
Crossing the border into Tibet, Phunuru reports that the Sherpa Team has cleared customs and will be heading to Tingri in the morning. As you can see, the duffle shuffle is a larger scale. We need to transfer all gear from the truck in Nepal to the Chinese truck. For many of the Sherpa, this is their first time crossing the border in Kyirong. They will be traveling around Shishapangma and into Tingri.
All is well and the Teams are enjoying their tours of Tibet!
